rb help - Battle or Murray? WHIR

Postby mutant.enemy » Sun Oct 23, 2011 9:08 am

Need to pick up a rb for the bye, standard league.

starting Forte
can pick up either Battle (at Oak) or Murray (vs Rams).

I think Battle may get more touches, but I am also starting Dwayne Bowe at wr....not sure I want to rely that much on KC.

Your right...Battle will get more touches and is the better play.

I like Battle this week as well. Think KC keeps it on the ground early.

So much for the great sages of the forum. I too started Battle and left Murray sitting on the bench. I lost my game by 25 points. Check the numbers and do the math. I start Murray and I win. Oh well........

Just something I've noticed as a poster here. Usually people read the answers that follow a post and then usually, they agree with them and say so. And the more answers you get the more 'conservative' the answer becomes too. So if you want to double check an answer, ask it again with a new thread on a different night or time of day. BTW, battle did get his touches and may have had two scores had they not gone with McClain and the direct snap to ____ (can't remember). I don't think anyone could have seen that happening. Battle was also the break out the week before, Murray was as yet 'sight unseen' and in fairness, Battle still looks like the back to own in KC.

Hindsight is always better but don't be too hard on the "sages" on this forum. As someone said to me before, if I had known the answer, I wouldn't have asked the question.

I agree completely with this. I've noticed that most people agree with the person above them, and I am guilty of it at times, too. (The name that you're looking for on the direct snap is Javier Arenas, btw)

As for me, I started Murray in a league that I'm 5-1 in and started Battle in a league that I'm 3-3 in. I won in both leagues, but keep this in mind: Battle will most likely be the main back in Kansas City the rest of the season if he continues to produce, while Murray, although blowing up on a poor Ram's defense, still may lose some touches here and there once Felix Jones recovers from his injury, and still has to share the backfield with Tashard Choice. Good luck.

I put myself in that group of sages in my reply. I read the threads, looked at the numbers and rolled with Battle. It was the wrong move, but I showed myself that I over-analyzed every choice I made this week. Bottom line was the Cowboy were at home against a poor defense and Murray was a hungry rookie looking to impress.
